Brainworx bx_shredspread

M/S Stereo Width & EQ for Guitars & Keys.

Overview

Although mainly created for guitars, bx_shredspread can also be used on keyboard groups, organs, choirs, background vocals and other stereo or doubled tracks.

bx_shredspread can control panning, stereo width, and the “tone” of your stereo guitar tracks and groups. It automatically avoids phase problems that commonly occur when using M/S technology thanks to Brainworx’s legendary algorithms for stereo width, EQ and pan.

Features

  • Intelligent stereo width, panorama, and tone control
  • Individual controls for “tone” (shred), stereo width (spread), mono bass
  • (Mono Maker Tool) and Mono pan vs. Stereo pan
  • Phase correlation meter to control phases visually
  • L/R stereo level LEDs
  • SHRED/Tone control: an automated algorithm to balance out EQ settings and levels of stereo signals
  • SPREAD/Stereo Width Control: from mono (0%) to “wider than your speakers!” (400%)
  • Mono-Maker Tool: make bass frequencies mono only for a huge bottom end in your mixes!
  • 4 automatable settings (A/B/C/D) with copy and paste plus 32 steps of Undo/Redo
  • Super-friendly UI – just slide the speakers for stereo width control

    I just wanted you to know I have bought most of your plug-ins in the last few months. Your gear is truly amazing! Can't mix and master without them. Thanks so much for making these excellent tools. I am in the midst of some high-profile projects and am more than happy to spread the word.
